EPOS H6 Pro Headset Review - The Premium Way Into Esports

In the world of gaming headsets, everyone will tell you they’re the best. Every headset, every audio output, and every microphone is “exactly what you need to get into esports!” - and typically, they’re wrong.

Every company has its quirks, though, and EPOS have already proved that they’ve got some serious chops to make up for their branding power. They might not be Beyerdynamic, SteelSeries or Razer, but EPOS is gradually making a name for themselves as purveyors of true quality in the gaming audio sector - and their new H6 Pro headset is proof that they know how to deliver a truly premium experience.

Audio Quality

EPOS H6 Pro Review

The leading reason to pick up a gaming headset, regardless of whether you’re a seasoned Esports pro or just trying to keep the noise down when your housemate’s gone to bed, is how the games actually sound when using the headset. And if you’ve used the H3 headset you’ll know that EPOS know what they’re doing in this department - and the H6 pro is no different.

Similarly to its H3 brother, the H6 Pro offers excellent in-game clarity with an elevated bass that’ll help you identify where those bullets in the distance are coming from. You won’t be able to echolocate on the battlefield with them just yet (although frankly, the technology might simply not exist for that yet), but when you’ve got it paired up with in-game clues and a strong UI, the headset will be a great clarity. 

The sound is also great for music with a bass-heavy approach - Metal or EDM pair up nicely with the headset if you’re using it casually, with some growling low-end and a snare that snaps with ferocity.

Build & Comfort

EPOS H6 Pro Review

One of the leading reasons to pick up the H6 Pro, beyond its excellent audio quality, is its build. The headset comes in black, white, and a very Master Chief-y Racing Green. It’s not just for show, either - the headset feels sturdier than most, as though it will last years, and the metallic finish is cold to the touch. There’s no denying that the design of the peripheral has been heavily considered (and probably where most of the RRP goes), and is something that will invoke oohs and aahs in Twitch chats across the world.

Despite this tough build, though, the headset doesn’t skimp on comfort. The headband is plush despite its sturdiness, and the ear cups fit comfortably over the ears without feeling like too much on your head - when you’re used to it.

The closed cup version of the headset, the one we took for a spin, does definitely need some time to break in. The first time you pop it on, it’ll be cosy and the noise cancellation will be incredibly effective - but as a result, it puts a lot of pressure on your ears. About half an hour into my first time with the peripherals I had to take a break from the painful pressure it put on my ears, but after a few more uses, it got easier to play for longer. It likely won’t be a problem for long, but for a time, I was worried that the headset simply wouldn’t be for me. Buying a fancy new peripheral shouldn’t have to be a matter of sheer persistence, but sadly, mine shortly was.

Versatility

EPOS H6 Pro Review

Even discounting the number of consoles and systems that the headset and accompanying microphone work with, the headset is incredibly versatile as it is. Though it’s heavier than slimmer than similar headsets with lesser build quality, it’s incredibly comfortable anywhere you take it.

It also comes with the excellent feature of a detachable microphone, so you don’t look too serious about your games when you’re playing your Switch at the airport, all while maintaining phenomenal microphone quality. The interesting thing about this feature is just how effortless it is to remove the microphone - pull it in front of your face, pull it to the side, and it’s off. It’s miraculous that such a microphone can maintain its almost studio-grade quality while remaining such a small part of your H6 Pro experience, and a huge credit to the headset’s attention to detail.

Verdict

EPOS H6 Pro Review

It’s clear that this headset isn’t entry-level. With its brilliant build quality, massively souped-up audio and incredible comfort (once you’ve broken them in, naturally) it comes closer to earning its price tag than many similar peripherals.

This won’t be one to pick up unless you’re about to get really serious about your competitive play, and want to take your budding esports career to the next level - but if you’re willing to commit, then the H6 Pros by EPOS are a great way to do so. What EPOS lack in brand recognition, they make up for in quality - and this headset is a shining example.

The EPOS H6 Pro Headset is £149, and is available for purchase from Argos.
